My car starts up just fine but the starter gear will not disengage. Batteries fine relay. I do not know if it is a relay solenoid just not sure.

Simple test. Start the engine, pull the starter relay out of the relay box on the drivers side. The starter should disengage. If it stays in then the starter or the solenoid on it are bad. If it disengages use a test light or voltmeter to check the terminals in the box for power. Only one terminal (red wire terminal B) should have power. If the yellow wire on terminal F has power you have an issue with the ignition switch.
